The physicians at our Botox clinic in DC will apply an appropriate neurotoxin to facial muscles. This will smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. Facial movements and expressions, such as squinting or smiling, lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Each time you use a facial muscle, a groove forms beneath the surface of the skin. As skin ages, it also loses its elasticity and is no longer able to spring back in place. These grooves then become permanent features on your face.
Dynamic wrinkles like forehead wrinkles, frown lines (between your eyebrows), crow’s feet (the corner of your eye) are examples of the wrinkles that respond to Botulinum toxin. Activities of these muscles cause moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults.
“Botulinum toxin Injection” at our clinic is a quick treatment that works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity”. These activities would otherwise cause moderate to severe frown lines, crows feet in adults. Botox can smoothen out these lines.
When will I see results?
The effect of your Botox will kick in about 3-4 days after your injection. The final result is seen in 2 weeks.
How long will my results last?
Botulinum toxin injection is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines will gradually return. The results last for 3-4 months.
Preventative Botox is gaining in popularity as younger women in their early 30’s are opting for “mini-Botox” treatments to delay age-related wrinkles which can become less treatable as the skin loses its elasticity. Smaller doses of Botox is thus used to achieve a natural result.
Will I look frozen?
Botox treatment by our physicians ensure that the correct dose is placed in an optimal position for your desired effect. As such, we can achieve great results with doses of Botox that will soften your wrinkles and avoid a “frozen face”. An unnatural look is not a good cosmetic result.
